There were already plenty rumors and assumptions around the existence of the Nvidia RTX 4090 Ti in development. But now it seems the tech array might have some new intelligence on the supposed GPU as well as the RTX 4080 16GB version.
According to new leaks that have been reported by Neowinwe may have some early benchmark results for the RTX 4090 Ti. In the Blender 3.3 test, alongside the 4080 and other GPUs, there is the mysterious “NVIDIA Graphics Device”. The unnamed card scored 12,906.07 points, which is 6.6% higher than even RTX 4090 and it is rumored that it may be 4090 Ti. Meanwhile, 4080 scored 9478.64 points, which is 22.5% less than the 4090 result of 12,107.64.
In the case of the Geekbench 5 test, the results of the 4080 OpenCL, CUDA and Vulkan tests for the RTX 4080 were leaked. The GPU scored 258 372, 300 728 and 148 838 points, respectively. Compared to the results of the 3080, which was also tested, the gains in scores are quite high.
Finally, there is the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark, where the 4080 scored 28,599 points for the 1440p test and 14,178 points for the 4K test. These are significant gains over the RTX 3080, AMD RX 6950 XT, and AMD RX 6900 XT.
Putting these benchmark results into perspective
The alleged existence of the RTX 4090 Ti is quite interesting as the rumors seem to swing wildly in between Nvidia RTX 4090 Ti rumored to be canned for exorbitantly high energy consumption, and is almost certainly a thing that will eventually be released. In fact, the source of the old rumor, Moore’s Law is dead, made it clear that the 4090 Ti could actually be Ada’s new RTX Titan. Titans are very expensive graphics cards that are aimed more at creative professionals.
But judging by the latest benchmark leak, the performance seems to be a better match for the 4090 Ti than the super pro GPU.
Meanwhile, the benchmark leaks for the RTX 4080 16GB are impressive, showing significant gains over the older GPU models of both Nvidia and AMD. This is a significant improvement over the previous one RTX 4080 12 GB a version that had to be officially “rejected” by Nvidia due to its poor specification.
So far, it seems like these upcoming next-gen cards could actually be a huge leap over their predecessors, although the prices are still too high to be available to everyone except the most hardcore gamers.
